did i just read Groundhogs???

oh man, yet another installment of the CPW blast from the past series!

Tony McPhee is a happenin guitarist and song writer (too bad about the voice)...and a shit kickin' trio...Solder, Garden, Ship on the Ocean, Thank JC For The Bomb...ya, i'll call him an Eccentric Man...i'll believe he is, even if he doesn't

Sunday nights between 11:00 and midnight CHUM-FM (in TO) used to re-broadcast live BBC recorded concerts of some great relatively unknown British bands...i had a shitty reel to reel that i used to tape the likes of Pink Floyd, Wishbone Ash and a bunch of others...one of those nights was the Groundhogs...some heavy shit...ended up snagging Split and about half of Cherry Red from the same performance off of Winmix years after all those analog tapes went astray

cheers!
